Simmonds aged 21 years Deeply regretted Published Every Evening SATURDAY JULY 30 1892 THE LAND BILL 1892 With the general provisions of Mr Bill it is rot our intention to deal just now and for the pre sent will content ourselves with giv ing the ideas of a gentleman who is interestad in the question of land settlement in this province He writes as follows Section It shall not be competent for any person or company to hold more than one run of any kind whatso ever This section if it becomes law will greatly depreciate the Crown lands of this district It is impossible for very large proportion of the leasehold land of the Crown to be worked in any other way than as they are now worked that is by the owners of the adjoining freehold and if it becomes law that a runholder can only hold one run then it must follow that large blocks of land will be practically idle and the rents which are now drawn from them become lost to the Crown Leasehold in Marlborough is nearly all rough and broken and what with the rabbit difficulty and great cost of working no man could make a living on the great majority of blocks as now surveyed It is possible that on the expiry of the existing leases the land will be re surveyed and put up in larger blocks than at present If this is done then there is practically nothing in the clause as far as Marlborough is con cernod except that we will have to bear proportion the cost of survey which will be considerable No doubt tbe proposal looks well as part of the bursting up policy of the present Government and will go down with the class to whom they pander but to fetter dealing with the Crown lands of this district as proposed is suicidal and this must be apparent to any one who will think the matter There is a great deal of force in what is said in the above but there are more sides to a story than one The admission that the lease holds can only be worked by those holding the freehold portions of the'runs points at once to gridironing and this evil or rather the effects of the evil have to be met It is all very well to say that nobody but say Mr Carter can work the run he holds as they now are but the question for the colony is how far it is justifiable to allow this to continue ortunately the Government are introducing and we hope will put through a Lands for Settlement Bill by which those land owners who prefer to be so anxious to get rid of their large areas can do so only be it observed with their own consent The Government so far have not shown much desire to ac quire runs at the Land Tax Valuation and perhaps when it comes to the pinch the land owners will be as little disposed to part with them Time will show LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS Answer to a Picton the matter alluded to is not one for our interference and therefore your letter is declined Evangelistic At the Wesley Church to morrow and during the week will ba 'held evangelistic services at which hymns will be used Religious Mules arrived by coach last night and will conduct a confirm ation service at the church of the Nativity to morrow morning and at St Marlboroughtown in the evening Temperance Mr Glover is advertised to conduct a Gospel Temper ance service to morrow (Sunday) evening in the Hall at 8 This will be the last meeting of the present series East Ward Election The voting yesterday was fairly constant all day and at night the result was as we had antici pated a large majority for Mr Thompson the figures being Lees 53 Thompson 125 a majority of 72 A death notice in another place will excite the sympathy of all for the distressed mother and relatives have quite enough trouble to put up with just now without such a loss as this If possible the authorities should allow the father (Mr Burns) to attend the funeral School At the School Com mittee meeting last night there were present Messrs Jackson Mead Tunnicliffe isher Harris and Purser Mr Jackson was voted to the chair Messrs Griffiths and Green were granted leave of absence It was de cided to ask the Board to replace Miss Logan The Secretary reported a credit balance of £28 2s lid and after doing some detail work and discussing the Arbor Day question reference to which appears else where the Committee adjourned Our A London letter by Iasi mail New Zealand Parliament will soon meet and then we shall see how much income the Government proposes to allow the owners of property or investments to retain for their own use It is unfortun ate that the large majority of New Zealand pay no taxes at all but am livjpg on the salary they vote themselves for the privilege of taxing those who have made the colony what it is but who are now re garded by the present Government aa social Ms The Good Tem Hall was occupied last night by Mr Glover Mr Riee in the chair The subject of Prohibition was dealt with reference being fnade to the advance of the movement in the colony during the past few years and to the fact that the Bill providing for compensation was lost on the voices a few weeks ago also that Mr Bill proposing to give power to the residents of any district to prohibit without compensation was down for spgond reading on Thursday next At the close Mr athers moved and Mr Handby seconded that the Chairman be requested to write Mr Buick asking for his support on that occasion This was carried unanimously and the Chairman promised to write Mr Buick Arbor Day As the action of the School Committee last night in accepting a tender for Arbor Day may be and in fact has been misunderstood we may state that the inten tion of the Committee is not in any way to interfere with the children going to Sey mour Square as it is considered that there will be sufficient for both places and the offer of Mr Gillespie being so reasonable they considered it advisable to plant the grounds at the same time As will be seen by advertisement in another column the Mayor asks the burgesses to keep a public holiday on the fourth and as thefourth of the month we advise them to Mr Huddleston's Mr Huddleston writes to us as follows Permit me to state that notice referring to the above and copied from the Evening Post of the 27th is misleading while incorrect in fact My continuous prayer to Parliament has been to claim compensation for the cancellation of my Lands Transfer License without no reason assigned or compensation o'ffered The Land Transfer Act of 1885 under which this is done is exceptional legislation inasmuch as it ignores the precedents laid down in four several Acts of the Assembly now and prior to 1886 the law of New Zealand and which Acts have reference to profes sional men and their status In support of this view I have for years asked that the opinion of the judges might be taken on the point but without avail as to do so must result in my obtaining tardy justice TELEGRAPHIC BB1TI8H AND OREIGN WHALING EXPEDITION UNITED PRESS ASSOCIATION) London July 28 A Dundee whaling expedition will cruise in the vicinity of the alkland Islands but

Richard Bell farmer Lora Gorge near Winton who was shot on Monday night while returning from the armers' Club meeting and died three hours later from hemorrhage fiom the vessels of the face and throat commenced to day but is not conoladed The gun which was found plunged in the mud at the scene ef the tragedy has not yet been traced to the owner but very definite statements by the deceased to his wife de posed to implicating John her uncle a man of 69 and lessee of the farm adjoining Mr Bell lived on good terms with his neighbors but about a month ago had a claim made on him for £3 damages caused by his cow getting at a stack of oats belonging to The matter was referred to the arbitration of two neighbors who assessed the damage at 12 shillings This was dissatisfied with and asked for two practical farmers as the assessors but no action had been taken in that direc tion The evidence given up to the despatch of this report does not include that of wife and daughter but Mr Irwin a neighbor who was roused by the daughter deposed that the girl cried at the window saying William fast dada has been shot by John at the lower Witness rose and went to immediately Replying to a question from witness Bell said I(m and shook hands He uas vomiting blood teeth and bits of bone at intervals He did not ask deceased who shot him because he' thought it was the place of his wife and father who were present to do that He had a conver sation after death with Mrs Bell as to how it came about Addressing de daughter witness said Jennie if what you called in at the window' to me is true you will require to be very cautious in what you say because a policeman will take down everything you say and you will want to tell nothing but the truth as this might be a hanging matter and want to stick to the truth and nothing but the Before the daughter had time to reply Mrs Bell said It is true and too true Jennie was following me close behind and she could hear She then stated that she said to her husband Dear Richard who murdered and he replied shot me from my horse at the lower The gun found seems nearly a new muzzle loader of an inferior construction The name is Moore of London The police have hot yet been able to find anyone who sold a similiar weapon here Lateb John 'Crae was arrested last night for the jurder of Richard Bell and was brought before the Court urther evidence was given by daughter to the effect that she heard her father say that shot him The inquest was adjourned for a week SEYMOUR SQUARE TO THE EDITOR Apropos to Arbor Day with the adoption of the advice of the Laird of Dum dykes to his son Be aye in a tree Jock it aye be growiu' while raises the question of what are the most suitable trees for planting here The Californian class so widely favored in the past throughout New Zealand are now sufficiently wall known to most settlers that it may be allowable to question their suit ableness for the object in view ormerly evergreen trees of gigantic size were so un known in English woodlands that their introduction by the settlers almost amounted to a craze added to which their quick growth bright foliage and promise of abundance of valuable timber seemed quite to place their deciduous brethren of the Old Country in the background Now however widespread destruction of 20 to 30 growth testifies to the folly of placing these evergreen giants casting perpetual shade within even moderate proximity to bouses roads or enclosures of moderate area and it wosld certainly be a pity to repeat the mistake of the past when attempting to beautify our only recreation reserve Deci duous trees and evergreen shrubs with a few of New Zealand handsome totaras rimus etc would form a plantation which might be considered permanent and avoid the reproach of repeating an experiment pre viously exploded Before however plant iog at all it seems a pity not to have set back the High Street fence to correspond with the Sinclair block end which would ba most acceptable to the traffic and must eventually be done if lanes are ever to become streets Without making a very definite suggestion I wish to draw attention to the subject before an error of judgment spoils the chance for a permanent improvement I am etc Huddleston GE Double width dress tweeds all wool usual price 3s 6d reduced to Is 6d yard a dress that

Hopse PRESBYTERIAN BAZAAR The Scotch Kirk folk are noted for the manner in which they work bazaars for the benefit of the Church spending months of labor in order to achieve the result aimed at They levy on their friends right and left and in the end come out The St Ghurch people are no exception and the result as shown by the immense quantity of articles displayed for sale yesterday show how well they have succeeded The stalls are so crowded with articles both fancy and ornamental that it is impossible to describe one half of the goods offered On the right hand side entering the hall is the stall presided over by Mesdames Simson and Hay who as their assistants had Misses Simeon Girling McArtney The main feature of this stall is the plain needlework cosies and painted plaques that are on view Next to this is the produce stall where butter beef apples poultry and all manner of good things are provided by Mesdames Litchfield Sinclair and raser who have certainly materials for a good dinner At the refresh ment stall next door is to be founds large assortment of eatables from jellies to tea and buns presided over by Mrs Healy who had the assistance of Misses Ireland and and speaking from experience the tea is On the left hand side entering from the street was a mysterious thing called a curiosity into which Misses Logan Craig and Dove invited the confiding public to take a while immediately in front was placed another temptation dear to called a bran pie the ingredients of which were known only to Mrs Guiokshank and the Misses Booker and Crnickshank Passing these enticements we come next to the floral department and judging by the number of decorated ladies and gentlemen present in the evening the trade in button holes must have been extensively carried on by Misses Hutcheson Ball and Healy Next to this comes a stall which is peculiarly attractive to bachelors because they will not in the least understand how such things are worn on the top of ladies heads but Misses Ball and Wemyss will soon explain to them how dainty the caps look and what use the impossible looking pockets in the aprons are Last stall of all that ends this strange eventful trip is that entrusted to Mrs James Hutcheson who has as her assistants Misses McCallum Anderson Wemyss and Gillespie and here is to be found one of the most attrac tive displays in the hall We were wrong in saying that this was the last for there were three little fairies (Misses Osgood Loganand Nicholas) who appeal to the public to try the depth of a fairy well whatever that may be In opening the bazaar in the afternoon the Rev Mr Robb made the following remarks Ladies and Gentlemen The promoters of this bazaar have asked me to make a short address and to declare the baziar open and I have much pleasure in doing so There are some good people who look with disfavor on bazaar's They think funds for church work should be forthcom ing without an effort of this kind I am sure all ministers aud office bearers would be pleqsed if their people had the will and ability to rise to this high ideal But we have to do with the real rather than with the ideal and from this point of view we find a bazaar a great help Others look askant on bazaars because of certain ques tionable practices sometimes connected with them So far as this bazaar is con cerned the questionable things will be con spicuous by their absence This is simply to be a straightforward sale of articles useful and ornamental worth the money asked The ladies who manage this sale are just like our respected tradespeople who according to their advertisements trust to prosper by civility strict attention to business and especially by giving good value I consider that an enterprise like this when properly carried out does a church good otherwise than financially Every self respecting member wishes to help in every good work connected with his church In all churches there are persons unable to give large subscriptions but who are able to give time and work A bazaar gives such persons an opportunity of materially help ing the church funds Then again to prepare and carry out a sale like this re quires organisation co operation oneness of purpose and other valuable qualities which when once called forth can be utilised for other good xyorks This is a distinct gain to a Church As to the necessity for this present sale 1 may say a few words Our building operations will cost not less than £1900 This is a very large sum for a small community Naturally we wish our debt to be as small as possible We should have been delighted had we been able to open free of debt But it will take us all we can do to onen with less than £600 debt or us tha't is rather heavy but we help it It is only three years since we started our busi ness scheme and if we open with £600 debt that means that in three years we have raised £1300 in addition to ordinary revenue Our people have been neither illiberal nor idle As the result of our exertions we hope to have a building' a credit to the Presbyterian Church and a desirable addition to the public buildings of our town Personally I am highly gratified with the exertions of the ladies of the con gregation and hope they will be encouraged to continue their efforts I understand friends of other denominations have been exceedingly generous in their gifts and on behalf of the ladies I have much pleasure in thanking them I now declare the bazaar In the evening the hall was crowded and the company seemed to be enjoying itself The following musical items were rendered Pianoforte duet Mias Ball and Mr Cheek ditto Missea Qirling and Simson song The Mrs Litchfield violin duet Masters Gould and Muncaster pianoforte solo Miss Hutcheson song Bravo Old Mr Orr and the following pieces by the Orchestral string March waltz march War March" overture Caliph of Mrs Kerr played the accompaniments in her usual artistio manner The takings were very satisfactory
